While almost all careers require some college, different careers have different educational demands. You can choose to attend college for months or for many years. The kind of college education you need depends on what kind of work you want to do.

Certificate Programs (9 weeks to 1 year)
Certificate Programs award you a certificate of completion rather than a degree when you finish class requirements. This training is specific and will qualify you for specialized jobs. Most certificate programs are six months to a year.

Associates Degrees (2 years)
Associates Degrees are two-year degrees. You take classes in a specific field of interest as well as general education courses. You can take courses at a Community College that count for an Associate Degree. There are many careers that pay good wages and are in high demand that can be yours with a two year degree.

Bachelors Degrees (4 years)
Bachelor Degrees are four-year degrees. You must complete about two years of general education requirements that include basic subjects like English, History and Math; and an additional two years of classes in your major area of study. A college or university awards a Bachelor of Arts (BA) and Bachelor of Science (BS) degrees.

Masters Degrees (6 years)
A Master’s Degree is an academic degree granted to individuals who have undergone study demonstrating a mastery or high-order overview of a specific field of study or area of professional practice. It provides higher qualification for employment and prepares for doctoral studies.

Advanced Degrees (8+)
Earning a doctorate requires successful completion of a regimen of coursework beyond the master’s level. A doctorate is an academic degree or professional degree that refers to a class of degrees which qualify the holder to teach in a specific field. Professional doctorates are awarded in certain fields where most holders of the degree are engaged in a profession, such as law, or medicine.
